Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku has completed a move from Chelsea to English Premier League rivals Everton.

The 35-million euro transfer fee is a record for the Merseyside club and Lukaku has signed a five-year deal.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell at Goodison Park last season, scoring 16 goals in 33 appearances, helping Everton finish fifth and qualify for the Europa League.
